Ghandi is famous for saying that if he believed what Catholics believe about the Eucharist, he would crawl on His hands and knees to receive it. His point is powerful, and we should learn from it. Knowing what we know should inspire a reverence in us great enough to shock and scandalize the world. At the same time, I wish I had been there to say to Ghandi, “If we Catholics ourselves fully grasped what we believe about the Eucharist, we would not dare approach it. If we Catholics truly understood the Eucharist, if it was revealed to us in all its glory, there would be a long line of unconscious people leading up to the altar.” God in His mercy comes to us in bread and wine that we might be able to receive Him without dying.

I’m a little confused by this quote and quotes like it. I mean if Jesus doesn’t want us to receive the Eucharist then why did he institute it? Why does He want us to know the Father by knowing him if by knowing him we would pass out or have to crawl on the floor to meet him? Why all the come to me all who labor and such if we can’t really come to him and must come to him in ignorance? I’m not trying to argue I’m just confused about majesty vs approachability and it’s something that really has confused me for a while. If anyone could give it the old college try I’d be really appreciative! Thanks in advance!

I think what quotes like this are trying to say is that we should remember that we don’t deserve this and we should be humble and thankful that God allows us to receive Him in such an intimate way even after all we’ve done wrong … but we have to remember that the Eucharist is Jesus’ body and blood the same one that died on the cross for us and that yes we should be humble before taking the Eucharist but we should also be joyful that our God loved us so much that he would die the worst death for us because of that death we are freed from sin and death because of that sacrifice
